A week of wintry weather kicks off with snow in Whatcom County. What will it look like?

The Bellingham Herald

Bellingham and the rest of lowland Whatcom County got its first taste of winter to open a rainy, windy week with possibly more snow on the horizon — or another long stretch of rain. Warmer temperatures were expected Tuesday, Dec. 7, as a storm approached that likely would melt the remaining snow that fell Monday morning, Dec. 6, coating lowland Whatcom County with an inch or more of snow, causing several crashes, delaying the start of schools, and altering bus routes. 

Cold, wet weather will continue through this week with several storm systems bringing mostly lowland rain, mountain snow, and breezy conditions, the National Weather Service said.

But it’s a storm on Saturday that has the most potential to bring lowland snow again this week, both the U.S. and Canadian weather services said.

There was too much uncertainty among the various weather models to make an accurate forecast, and meteorologists were watching it closely as far as timing, strength and whether it carried wind, rain, snow or a combination of all three, Kristell said.
